Such a great surprise to see Boniface here! He's one of my favourite characters since I was a child. By the way, the whole blog is fantastic, I love it! I appreciate what you're doing and finding the works of Russian illustrators (as I am Russian myself) over here is quite pleasing, too. Thanks a lot, Laura!)
wool-bulb, thanks for the link and the info, I didn't know that Norstein was involvedshoorique, thank you, I am glad that you too love Boniface. Russian illustration and animation are wonderful and too little known in the western world!
